This chapter explores the nature of human fear & anger according to a ‘Primal’ psychological perspective. As part of this exploration, the author undertakes a ‘Primal’ understanding of suicide, which he argues is attempted when all the ways an individual has tried to end his or her pain have been unsuccessful. The benefits of Primal Therapy in treating suicidal individuals are discussed.
